Now that the July 15th Tax Day has come and gone, it would be easy to think that tax issues are done. However, that is not the case and there are new updates to be aware of. To help address many of these tax issues, MVLS created a free Tax Hotline (443-451-4091) to help individuals who need assistance.
For individuals who filed an extension, the new Tax Day is October 15. An extension is only an extension to file, NOT an extension to pay. If you will owe taxes for 2019, it is best to file as early as possible to avoid additional failure-to-file penalties. If you owe taxes, but are unable to pay them MVLS can assist with determining what options may be available to resolve outstanding debt.
MVLS’ Tax Hotline can also help answer any questions you may have about the Economic Impact Payments, also known as the “Tax Stimulus Check.” Although most checks have already been issued and there is discussion of a second payment coming, there are some individuals who haven’t received the first one. MVLS can assist with tracking down unreceived payments and provide information about additional resources. If you still need to file your 2019 tax return in order to receive your Economic Impact Payment, MVLS may be able to assist you with that as well.
MVLS is available to answer any questions you may have about taxes. Dealing with the IRS and the Maryland Comptroller can often be confusing and frightening. MVLS can help. The Tax Hotline (443-451-4091) is available for brief advice, but support can be provided for other tax issues. MVLS’ Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) can help with back tax issues as well as any other tax questions that arise.
If you need assistance with any of your tax issues, please reach out to MVLS’ Tax Hotline at 443-451-4091 on Monday-Friday from 10 am-4 pm. If your call is not answered, please leave a message and all calls will be returned.
